Does the water flushing from a toilet move in the opposite direction in the southern hemisphere?
Because of the rotation of the Earth, the Coriolis effect means that hurricanes and other giant storm systems swirl counter-clockwise in the Northern Hemisphere, and clockwise in the Southern Hemisphere. However, one cannot observe the Coriolis effect by watching a toilet flush or a swimming pool drain. The movement of fluids in these basins is dependent on the manufacturer’s design (toilet) or outside forces such as a strong breeze or movement of swimmers (pool).
